Apple and Carrot Muffins

A very sweet, moist muffin. It tastes a lot like carrot cake. You could even frost this with cream cheese frosting for more of a dessert muffin.

    So delicious! I swapped 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of 1/2 cup white, and 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce for some of the oil. I love how the small pieces of apple get soft like apple pie when they bake. It felt good making muffins so loaded with veggies and relatively low in sugar, and the kids LOVED them.

    Yum! I didn't add coconut (don't care for it), but added some extra carrot to make up for the volume. This made six large muffins, which I topped with cream cheese frosting. Lovely!

    These are very nice muffins. I couldn't buy muffins this good from a café, so I will be making these again AND adding a pic if and when my camera battery turns up ;-)

    Ooh these are yummy!! I left out the nuts b/c I don't care for nuts in my muffins. I did add some milk. I made 12 muffins but a few were small. Maybe add another grated carrot? Wonderfully moist & delicious. OH! I rebelled against the white flour & used rye flour that was staring me in the face. It worked wonderfully! I also used Splenda for baking. YUM! Thank you! Made for PAC Fall '07.
